If it wasn't for needing to work on a Westfalia like every 15 minutes while on road trips, I'd buy one!

When you start to work on that rear panel give us a photo and we'll supervise and give some directions :mrgreen:

nah. I got rid of that bug when I first moved into my van and headed out into the woods. Maybe I'll buy another one someday, but for now the Van Charger is the priority. It has to be ready by Halloween for my Baja trip. Better bust out the hooked-on-phonics tapes.. My Spanish sux.

Welp. I did a full inspection of the V-Charger and this has gone from a "polish the turd and go camping" project to a near full tear down and rebuild.

Here is the front so ugly only a mother could love it!

Here is the body damage to the driver side quarter. It looks worse then it actually is.
